New to molting

Post by Princess R. » Sat Dec 22, 2018 1:20 pm

Hello, my crab buried himself in the substrate some time ago, and he stayed down for seven weeks. Now, last night he came up again, and he's quite lively. Can I move him to the main tank yet? He was hungry, too.
I have 4 purple pinchers. Crush, Bubbles, Sheldon, Sandy, and little Angelo. And I love Jesus! He is the way, the truth and the life, and he knew what he was doing when he made hermit crabs!☺

He should be good to go in your main tank now. It’s good to dip them in water before putting them into a new tank to wash of the freshly molted smell and to wash off the smell of a threat to the other crabs. Congratulations on successful molt. <3
